Hi

Many people here say SEs like CSS sites better. So I designed a CSS based site. Since my design and programming skills are very mediocre I borrowed a template from a free templates website. The site has 3 columns. It works just fine with IE5. However, it looks pretty bad in IE6. Like the third column is not a column and is displayed at the bottom of page. I don't know what to do - the site is online and most likely be included in the next Google updated index.

Can someone please help?

Thanks
Dan

Thank you Nick.

The site has 3 columns - you know newspaper style, 1 fatter column in the middle, two smaller twin columns on both sides of the fatter column.

These last two columns don't look right in IE6. Namely the right one is not displayed where it should be. It is displayed screen whide below the other 2, the background color is not the right one (background color is the whole site's color.

The other thin column the one on the left looks OK, but there is no space left to the left between the text and column border.

Hope you guys can figure this out:)

dan is your page a "pixel perfect" design? i.e. are your columns design to fit to ab absolute size..

if so it could be IE's "Box Model" problem which is causing the page to display too wide. Therefore when there's no room for the third (right hand) column it will automatically go to the next line...

is there any way you could post an abbreviated version of your CSS and HTML
